As far as I know it's official. I let iTunes download and upgrade it for me instead of manually downloading it from a link.

be aware

I downloaded 2.0 over an hour ago....it completely erased my phone and after the update was supposed to reconnect to iTunes store and re-upload all my content. This has yet to happen, my phone is stuck on slide for emergency and useless. I can only assume that this is due to everyone attempting to access iTunes store at the same time. It keeps telling me the connection timed out, try again later. Now I'm screwed b/c I have very important businesss to conduct today and now I have been without a phone for over an hour. I know it's my fault, I should have waited until after the initial rush, but I didn't expect this.

I don't believe that any of us expected this including Apple ;)

If you go through iTunes, it is the official one. It is out now but tons of people are stuck with a useless phone because it started the update and timed out. Too much traffic.

same here all I expected was slow download speeds or unable to log on but not to allow a download and then just lock out the phone to emergency mode... I have to leave for work in 2 hours so I hope it comes back soon but I am not counting on it.

This took 2-3 minutes for me. Just hope it keeps going and not stop like it did for me. I am like Tony, I have a useless piece of junk right now.

And how silly that the iPhone discussion page on Apple's site is down and just says "We'll be back soon"

ugh!

Well, that is the beauty of having this forum. You are saving me and others from going through the same thing. My AT&T in Chattanooga had a big line at nearly noon, so I expect this has been a big seller today.

Keep the faith gang! I just got connected!

Just keep trying. It took me around 20-30 min. of re-trying to connect, but it eventually happened!
Whew... sigh of relief :)

The only issue was the wait for the servers. I got timeouts for about 20 minutes but it eventually went through. I did loose all my music but that was expected and can be restored from my Music library at home. All the other data like contacts, notes, and calendar entries were restored.
